06/27/2005: Dialing 9/11...
Sherm Wright has a good post on the latest Karl Rove incident:
The White House and indeed the entire right wing media establishment have been diligently defending his comments. But is defense enough? My free advice to Karl is that he should turn up the heat by pointing out additional liberal failings revealed by 9/11. For example, liberal reaction to 9/11 clearly showed the bankruptcy of liberal energy policy. The Bush Administration had a muscular reaction to the terrorist attack as it related to oil: accelerating the slurping of domestic reserves. What was the liberal reaction? A wimpy call for conservation to reduce reliance on this essential but finite resource from a volatile part of the world. In other words, liberals want to hamper Americaís strength by denying ourselves our God-given right to all the oil we feel like consuming when and how we want to consume it! Like, if youíre thirsty you should drink up. Can a high-performing athlete keep his strength up if he lets himself get dehydrated? Denying America its full measure of consumption is a call for weaknesses! Itís like saying we should compete with one arm tied behind our collective back! And energy policy is just the beginning....Go give the whole post a read.
